Abstract

Physical activity declines dramatically during adolescence and activity levels are consistently lower among children living in low-income communities. Competency in a range of fundamental movement skills (FMS) may serve as a protective factor against the decline in physical activity typically observed during adolescence. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a 12-month multi-component physical activity and FMS intervention for children attending primary schools in low-income communities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 41. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 June 2021.
All research outputs
#657,863
of 18,304,658 outputs
Outputs from Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise
#716
of 6,144 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,209
of 202,814 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise
#14
of 66 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,304,658 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,144 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 21.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 202,814 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 66 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
